Due Date October 23, 2020. THIS SWAP IS CLOSED TO NEW PLAYERS

Three for Three Tag Swap.

If you have withdrawn from any of the previous Trash or similar swaps, you are not eligible to join this swap.

ABOUT THE SWAP AND THE ENVELOPE OF TRASH/STASH

This is a no withdrawal Trash/Stash Swap.
This swap is an Asian themed mixed media collage challenge to create tags from trash/stash items.
Each envelope will have a variety mostly Asian themed items.
Some items will be the same type but slightly different.

Once you have signed up and have been sent your envelope of trash/stash, you are committed to finish the swap. Late returns or no returns will receive a neutral iTrader.

Limit 16 players.

Tags can be size 5 (4 3/4 by 2 3/8 or size 8 (6 1/4 by 3 1/8).
Each tag you make can be a different size.
You can make your own tags with cardstock.
If you make your own tag, it must have a hole at the top.
You do not have to put a string or ribbon through the top hole.

This is a 3 for 3 swap – all mixed media and collage, no hand drawn, no zentangles.

Two items you receive in your Trash/Stash envelope must be used as part of your tag, but you must provide your own image focal point. The focal point needs to be an Asian person, place or thing.

The trash/stash items are not appropriate for a focal point and are sent to be inspiration with color or texture for your creation - they are meant to be used for background to a focal point like an image or picture. No abstract Tags. Be sure your Tags are sturdy.

You must use TWO pieces of trash/stash on each Tag. You can use the same piece of trash/stash on every Tag. You can alter, color, cut, paint, turn over, ink, use as a tool, make little bits of any piece of trash/stash included in your envelope. Every envelope will have a variety of Asian themed items of various sizes.

Tags do not need to be in a sleeve, but please protect them some way before putting them in the mail.

TO SIGN UP

Post in the tread to sign up that you have read all the requirements and are aware that this is a no withdrawal swap and that any withdrawal or late cards will receive a neutral iTrader.

Send me your address and I will send you an envelope of miscellaneous trash/stash items.

All envelopes of trash/stash will be sent to you FREE.

POSTING TO THE THREAD

Please post to the thread when you have received your trash/stash items.

Once you have completed your Tags, post the Tags in the thread listing which trash/stash item you have used.

MAILING YOUR TAGS

On the back of your Tag, include your AFA username, real name and the trash/stash items you have used.

Send me a SASE with return postage equal to the amount of postage it cost you to send your Tags to me. Please write your AFA user name and the swap name on the outside of your envelope.

This is information for everyone:

Please do not draw or write extra stuff on the front of the envelope.
I recently received mail where the person drew colorful crayon flowers all over the front of the envelope.
Plus she put a little triangle of dots before and after the zip code.
It had gone through 8 machines and almost four weeks before it got to me.
Save your artwork for the inside of the envelope and reserve the front of the envelope to be read easily by machines.

Everyone please remember the requests regarding mailing your tags to me. Those requirements are in the first post.

Also I would like to reiterate that the post office can not read my address properly if you have written, stamped, colored, drawn, put washi tape and/or written notes on the front of the envelope. Mail is handled by machines. Every envelope is read by a computer and sorted by a sorting machine to go to the proper location.
